Positive Declaration

Oswego County - The Town Board of the Town of Hastings, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Central New York Raceway Park may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves an application by Central New York Raceway Park, Inc. for a Special Use Permit to construct a motor sports and harness racing complex on approximately 150 acres located in the Town of Hastings. The complex will feature a 2.2 mile paved "road course" motorsports racing circuit as well as a one-half mile synthetic dirt racing oval; a fifty bay NASCAR style garage space located in a 360 foot by 60 foot building in the pit area; a look out/central tower and outdoor parking sufficient to permit parking for up to 200 large vehicle haulers or a much larger number of personal vehicles. A separate 10 foot by 60 foot building will serve as the facility maintenance building. The proposal also includes theater style stadium seating for 4,980 spectators located between the one-half mile synthetic dirt oval and the grandstand building. The grandstand building consists of a 350 seat full service restaurant, a 275 seat banquet room, VIP suites, observation deck, a full television and radio production studio, offices, and control tower. The plan also includes a horse stabling barn, paddock, security and offices for State Regulatory personnel for harness racing on the half-mile synthetic dirt racing oval. The racing complex will also include a skid pad and Solo Course for Solo events and Kart events in the center of the synthetic dirt oval suitable as a show platform for musical concerts or other civic events. The spectator parking area will fit 2,500 cars. There will be additional parking in non-paved lots for another 2,000 vehicles. LED lights will be dark-sky compliant.

The project is located between U.S. Route 11 and Interstate Route 81 in the Town of Hastings, New York.
